This is me!
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile! My name is Jeff, but my friends call me "JDiz." I was born and raised in the beautiful sunny Southern California. I began photography at a young age. Often times on vacation, I would be the one taking pictures of scenery, people, or just the random things that I found interesting. I was quite lucky as a child and had the opportunity to travel to several places around the world with my family. I can't explain in words how amazing it is to have been to places many just see in Art History books. I am truly blessed.
In High School, my vacation hobby became a passion. I learned how to shoot and develop my own photos in a dark room. It was there that I formed a love for this art form. I would spend hours in that dark room, perfecting my work and often times I would just hang out in their, treating it almost as a safe haven from the hectic life that most teenagers experience.
Fast forward three years. For Christmas I got my first digital SLR. I began shooting everything around me and I couldn't stop. Everywhere I looked, everything I did, I saw things nothing short of unique and beautiful, and had to be a part of it. Through my lens was a magical world I have never seen before. Over time, I learned the several aesthetic aspects of photography. With each frame that passed, I learned more and more. It became a hunger I had that I had to satisfy daily. I want so badly to create images that shock, inspire, and move others. Now I do photography professionally. My hope with every client is that I can form a special bond with them and create something so beautiful that they proudly carry it with them for the rest of their lives. Nothing would bring me greater joy than being able to shock, inspire, and move others through my work.
My rates vary depending on the shoot. Drive time, props, equipment needed, location, etc. All of these play a factor. My prices are very reasonable and are negotiable. I am currently only doing commissioned shoots and VERY SELECTIVE TF* SHOOTS! If I don't contact you for a shoot, chances are I am not interested in a TF* shoot with you. I do NOT pay to shoot models EVER.
I MUST HAVE A TWO WEEKS NOTICE FOR ANY SHOOT! DO NOT TRY TO BOOK A SHOOT WITH ME A WEEK AHEAD OF TIME!
